Miopia, o idee de prevenire

Universitatea din Sydney a publicat rezultatele unui studiu, la care au participat 4000 de copii, conform caruia miopia are mai putine sanse sa apara la copiii care petrec in fiecare zi 2-3 ore afara, la soare.

Dr Kathryn Rose of the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney, said “Our results show that the protective effect of time spent outdoors persists even if a child is doing a lot of near work such as reading and studying. Television watching and using computers appears to have little effect on the development of refractive errors. Our recently published comparison of age-matched Chinese children from Sydney and Singapore showed the same trend. The results of this study are consistent with an American study which found that outdoor sport was protective, however, our study shows that the crucial feature is being outdoors irrespective of the activity you are doing. Our recently published comparison of age-matched Chinese children from Sydney and Singapore showed the same trend”

Prevention of myopia is important for future eye health, avoiding increased rates of cataract and glaucoma in adulthood, and in cases of high myopia, possible irreversible visual impairment. Promoting outdoor activity to parents and families, and including more outdoor pursuits in school curricula, could be an important public health measure to avoid the development of myopia.
